The rapper arrived at the courthouse in Queens, New York around 8:55 a.m. with her bodyguard and her lawyer. She wore a black coat and brown hat, the latter of which covered her rainbow-colored hair. She also shielded her eyes with a pair of sunglasses, which she removed once inside the courthouse.
The "Bodak Yellow" artist was released on her own recognizance. A bail of $2,500 was also requested but turned down. The recording artist is expected to be back in court Jan. 31.
As for the two women she was accused of attacking, they received orders of protection. As a result, Cardi B is not allowed to contact them or go near them. The judge also warned her not to attack them on social media, including tweet at them or about them. Doing so, the judge noted, could result in her arrest.
This appearance was important for Cardi B. She was originally scheduled to appear in court on Monday but failed to do so. Not showing up again could have resulted in her facing a possible arrest.
